Synopsis

Gerald, Cathy, and Jimmy wake a princess from her hundred year sleep in an enchanted garden. It's really only Mabel, the housekeeper's niece-- but the garden really is enchanted, and the ring she slips on really is magic. The children find themselves in some funny, some frightening, and some absolutely magical situations before everything gets sorted out.

In this case the children help to balance the more surreal magical elements, but a few more details on the ring and its origins would have help make the magical storyline a bit more stable.
